A very large one bedroom Victorian apartment with wooden floors and heaps of style, 60m 2
Comfortably fits a couple, and is a short walk from trendy areas of Portobello and Westfield entertainment and shopping, three tube lines, train and bus.

Ground floor of a Victorian villa, a very large, airy and sunny apartment. It has one double bedroom with a very large double bed, spacious living room and separate kitchen. The place is within walking distance from great shopping, on a quiet residential street in Shepherds Bush, just off Goldhawk Road. There is a lovely neighbourhood with cafes and shops just across the road - Hammersmith Grove.
The flat is also not far from Holland Park shops and cafes (15-20 min walk max) and 20-25 min walk to Portobello Road.

This is zone 2, next to three (3) tube stations, Westfield shopping, outdoor market within 5 min walk, etc. Nearest tube: Goldhawk road Hammersmith & City + Circle Line (2-3 min), Shepherds Bush Central line (7-10 min).

Dishwasher, washer/dryer, cooker (gas stove and oven), all kitchen stuff, super juicer, french press, towels and bedlinen, hairdryer and all other perks of a normal home.

Minimalistic interior with antique pieces, all necessary things, plenty of storage, heating / hot water, large fridge/freezer. The flat has a lot of books, fine wine glasses and generally fairly nice things here and there, as it is my home, and I would appreciate if you treat it as such. There is usually some ground coffee and tea.
Unlimited broadband and WiFi available throughout. Plus if you have an Iphone or Ipod - Bowers and Wilkins mini zeppelin is at your disposal with a fantastic sound.

Please note though, that if you find nice cosmetic products, scented candles or wine in the cupboards, this, perhaps, means they are mine. Should you chose to use or consume these, please replace with same products. I hope you understand that after a long trip away we all like to find things we left home intact and waiting for us.
The flat does not have a TV, sorry. Do you really need it?

It is not suitable for two people wanting to share, but rather for a couple or a single person. There is only one, but very large bed (super King size), and the sofa is not really made for sleeping.

As the place has old victorian wood floor the only thing I ask is to remove heavy shoes (or high heels) indoors after 9 pm, as the sound travels rather well to my downstairs neighbors. Please do recycle (special bags) and if you do need something else during your stay - do ask, I am very happy to help.

There are some personal things left in a wardrobe and chests, as this is my home. These are off bounds. Please use what you find in the kitchen, but do be kind and replace particular upmarket essentials when you leave with similar products. I normally leave guest soaps, shampoos and other little bits in a glass jar in the bathroom. Any full size products are personal, should you come across them.

I am always available on email and phone. Alas, not always in your time zone. Most likely my cleaner or a friend will meet you on arrival.

You can easily walk to Holland Park (just over the roundabout) and enjoy the tranquil green space or go for a run, go have coffee or lunch around Holland Park area (15-20 min walk max) or even get to Portobello on foot. If you chose to stay very locally - crossing the road to Hammersmith Grove will get you to some nice cafes (in about 5 minutes), like Raoul's deli and cafe, for example, the Grove restaurant and many more. There is a yoga studio as well. Should you wish to shop till you drop - within 10 minutes walk is a Westfield shopping centre, with a mind-blowing array of cafes, bars and restaurants, plus a great number of shops, a cinema and a great deal more. Right next to us is a Shepherds Bush market, an open air affair for fresh veggies and fruit and some ethnic fair. A great number of supermarkets and ethnic shops and cafes on both Goldhawk road and Uxbridge road. Uxbridge road (just at the other end of Devonport Road, where you are) has great Middle Eastern shops that always have fantastic selection of fruit and veg on offer, better than Shepherds Bush market. There are a few ok Thai places, and other ethnic restaurants. Best Thai I use is in Notting Hill Gate, called Thai Break. Unfortunately they don't do deliveries, but the food is authentic Bangkok Thai. Polpo in Notting Hill Gate is also fantastic. But Westfield shopping centre offers a huge variety of good restaurants, alas, in a more "mall" setting.

You are right in the middle of great transport connections: Circle, District and Hammersmith and City line station (Goldhawk road) is within 3-4 min walk, Central line *Shepherds Bush - 10 min walk. There are a number of buses outside the house as well.

All good

My stay at Olgas flat was perfect. I needed temporary accommodation until I find an apartment and it was exactly as I expected. The metro station is a 5 minutes walking distance, the neighborhood is calm, quiet and with many supermarkets and stores around. The house is nice, well accommodated and very convenient for a short or long stay. Highly recommended!

We stayed at Olga's place for a month while apartment hunting in London. Great warm, large, interesting space with everything we needed. Olga was a fantastic host, always quick to respond, totally helpful and clearly takes pride in her home. The neighbourhood has diverse eating options, with Goldhawk Road also having great fabric stores. Overall we'd recommend especially for someone looking for a longer stay.

What a beautiful apartment! High ceilings and big windows mean there's so much space and light. Modern furniture, a recently decorated bathroom, well-stocked kitchen and a VERY comfortable bed make this a favourite London spot. I'll be back!

I am a writer, filmmaker and producer, live between London and a few other spots and travel a lot. For most part I have been renting my apartment during the times when I am not there. Mostly for a long(ish) term rental. So please send a message with the dates you might need. I am careful and selective about whom I rent to, as this is my home, and I expect people to treat it as such.
